Mindfulness accomplishes nothing, we practice to “do nondoing”

We are perfect already, awakened, complete.
.
.
We need to accomplish nothing, paradoxically we need to let go of everything.
.
.
The story we invent, “I”, me, mine, separates us from our chance at freedom, happiness.
.
.
The ego needs approval, reinforcement, satisfaction, accomplishment.
.
.
Our practice cultivates the practice of nondoing.
.
.
Nondoing is being in the moment, empty of thought, judgment, ever present and aware.
.
.
It takes dedication, persistence, trust and courage to practice nondoing.

  1. And doing this helps to reverse the effects of trauma

  2. Healing happens when we integrate trauma to present moment. PTSD is irrational, unavailable consciously, so mindfulness, going below the conscious is a perfect solution.

    To be more specific, trauma memories are stored in the amygdala, an almonds shaped organ in our brain. The amygdala is tasked with defense and launches our fight or flight mechanism.

    Making friends with our nervous system and having the ability to focus while the fight or flight mechanism fires can lead to healing.
